Narrated Itban bin Malik Al-Ansari : The prophet (S) asked permission for entering and I allowed him . He asked , ” Where do you like me to pray in your house ?” I pointed to a place which I liked . He stood up for prayer and we aligned behind him and he finished the prayer with Taslim and we did the same .
Narrated Aisha : The mother of the believers : Allah’s Apostle (S) during his illness prayed at his house while sitting whereas some people prayed behind him standing the prophet beckoned them to site down . On completion of the prayer, he said , ” The Imam is to be followed : bow when he bows , rise up your heads when he rises his head and when he says , Sami a-L-Lahu Iman -hamida say then Rabbana . Wa laka -l-hamd and if he prays sitting then pray sitting .”
Narrated AL-Bara : When Allah’s Apostle said , ” Sami a-L-Lahu Liman hamida ” none of us bent his back till the prophet prostrated and then we would prostrate after him .
